6:41am
welcome back. on the military front lines, you have to be a leader able to handle unbelievable amounts of stress. at built to adapt to fast- changing situations with a moment's notice is a must, of course. when i you aservice member returns home from war, these skills can translate into success in the work force but making that transition can be difficult. that is where the organization we're about to introduce you to comes in. ramsey sulaman joins us now with more. thank you for. coming in on this veterans day. >> sure. thank you for having me. >> we appreciate it. vets say the hardest thing is using the skills they have there and applying it to a job here. organization help out in that regard. >> one of the thins that veterans find most challenging, the unemployment rate is high. it has been stubbornly high for vet an, over two percentage points higher than it is for civilians. one of the thins that veterans
6:42am
find difficult that is employers don't understand necessary lit military service. in a generation where less than 1% of the population is serving in the military, it is not quite like world war ii where everybody had that experience of either having served or a family member or neighbor and really understood what people did. so today, when veterans come back, you know, that is one issue. another issue is that a lot of the credential and licenses that you might expect that say a military medic would have. i have a good fend who in afghanistan performed combat life saving on a french foreign legionnaire shot in the head. he couldn't get a job as i medic when he came back. he had great training. one of the things that we are doing is working on capitol hill to try to get credentialing and licensing initiatives through and laws passed to give some reciprocity there and we are all partnering with businesses and doing hiring fairs and also trying to help them bridge the gap
6:43am
between military and civilian -- the ending of the employment and what veterans can bring to them. >> so you are kind of like a middleman in a sense sort of helping everybody understand each other and their skills. >> we are a little bit of a conduit in that sense. hopefully, as the economy improves and as people get a greater understanding of exactly what veterans do, because a lot of the jobs are really analagous. but when you leave the military, it is like that never happened. >> interesting. talk a little bit too about the fact that now, i mean we have a lot of vets that come back with issues with post traumatic stress disorder. tell me how the association is able to work with those vets who have those sort of issues that they're working through mentally and at the same time trying to get them back into the work force. >> well, what we are really focusing in terms of ptsz and
6:44am
mental health is trying to reduce the backlog that the va has for health care and expanding mental health care care access particularly for guard and reserve who don't have the resources to avail themselves of when they come off active duty. we are trying to help people readjust and reaction reacclimate so they can come back and be successful with employment and family and the whole thing that make everybody happy in life. >> real quick, you are always open and accepting helping veterans. your doors are always wide open. >> we are. we have about 200,000 members around the country. so we have presence and we do a lot -- a little bit different model than most.
6:45am
we do a lot via internet and twitter. >> we have a link to your web site as well on myfoxdc.com. you are also a marine as well, served in iraq. >> i did. >> we appreciate your service as well today. >> sure. thank you for having me. >> wisdom, over to you. >> thank you. and here is tucker barnes to talk about the weather. >> a beautiful weekend. we had very mild temperatures yesterday. got to 71 degrees yesterday at reagan national. still going to enjoy the mild temperature today. cloud cover moving in and some rain showers. >> but it will be cold. >> cooler. hang in there. this is not the end. let's get to it. take a look at temperatures at rag and national. it won't be that bad. 50 in washington. 53 this morning in annapolis. we were cool overnight but not terribly cold. the last week or two, we've
6:46am
gotten up with temperatures in the upper 30s and low 40s. baltimore, 39 degrees. i mentioned the mild temperatures. yesterday, 71. won't quite get to 70 today. we'll get a bit of a bros here out of the south later this afternoon up ahead of our front. stoush start your day. get out an enjoy it right now. shortly, the clouds will move in and it will be a mostly cloudy afternoon. -- we'll get a bit of a breeze here out of the south later this afternoon up ahead of our front. sunshine to start your day. rain will move in and should stick around and linger for the morning commute tomorrow and quickly push off the coast. the good news is where with the front moving so fast, i think by tomorrow afternoon we'll get sunshine back in the forecast along with cooler air, much cooler air. here is a number to look at at futurecast. notice the rain showers just starting to move in here at midnight tonight. they will be with us for the morning commute tomorrow. there we are at 8:00.
6:47am
the back side of this, the sunshine already breaking out by late morning across the region along with the cooler temperatures. so, not a terrible looking forecast and it won't be terribly cool behind the front although much cooler than today. 68, becoming cloudy. winds south, five to 10. here is your accu-weather seven- day forecast. much cooler behind the front. 52, still we can deal with that with some early showers and afternoon sun and the remainder of the week we bounce around in the 50s all week. nothing too extreme although temperatures a little cooler than they should be for this time of year. kind of the theme of the month so far. >> all right. >> all right. >> well, it is justify the three of us today. >> mr. perkins is not here. he is under the weather a little bit. >> yes. he is not feeling well. >> time for ask tony and tucker. >> yeah! >> would you, that got deeper

and deeper. >> that was awesome. we put our fabulously large heads together. today, great we come from noah frasier. we all know where the president lives. >> yeah, the white house. >> i figure everybody knows where that is, right? >> we should. >> but what about the vice president's house? >> oh, kind. gets left out a little bit sometimes. >> it does. fascinating history. i had no idea the history of the vice president's house and how recently vice presidents have lived there. >> you pass by and you think it's just always been that way but it hasn't. >> fascinating stuff. let's get down to business. the vice president lives at the united states naval observatory and that is in northwest washington, sort of -- off massachusetts? >> yes, right. >> off massachusetts. you can tell by the secret service you see around fences. >> and the clock. >> and the clock and the fact that the fences are nine feet
6:49am
high. >> you can't see the house from the road. >> i've never been able to see the house. >> you can kind of see the roof. look at the house. >> it's governious house. the house was built in 1893 for the superintendent of the then united states naval observatory. -- its a gorgeous house. it is 9153 square feet. >> not bad. >> beautiful house and, of course, historic. this was originally the naval observatory for a hundred years before it became the vice president's house. it was used as an observe fry teri for stars, aston my. this was on the outskirts of town j oh, my gosh. >> the u.s. presidents back in the day used to travel out here by horse and carriage to get to enjoy the stars and get to
6:50am
enjoy a little country. isn't that amazing. >> now, it is in northwest d.c. the vice president lives this. the history goes that it got going in the late 109s. the first vice president to live there was walter mondale in 1977. they decided in 1974. traditionally, vice presidents had lived at their own resident and i think we many time visited president gerald ford when he was vice president, his former house in virginia and it is still there. so in 1974, they decided it was too complicated, too many security risks with having a vice president live in his own residence. they decided to make this the full-time residence of the vice president. it wasn't until 1977 that the vice president officially lived
6:51am
